Volunteers Give Time and Skills

Volunteers at Benefis bring a wealth of unique life experiences, kindness, and helping hands to our patients and staff. We welcome people age 14 and over to serve in an area that matches your needs and interests.

Our volunteers help in areas such as:

Baby Hats/Blankets
In the comfort of your own homes, make hats for every newborn baby and blankets for neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) isolettes (incubators).

Emergency Department Volunteers
Assist and visit with family and patients in our new, expanded Emergency Department.

General Office Help
Help out in all areas of the hospital by answering phones, filing, handling mail, and many other office tasks.

Gift Shops
Assist visitors and staff as they purchase gifts and other fun items from our four shop locations at Benefis Health System.

Information Desk/Escort Service
Meet and greet patients, doctors, vendors, and visitors and assist them by providing room numbers, directions, and other information. Volunteers also escort non-emergency patients to various hospital departments and rooms, as hospitals can be very confusing places for visitors.

Junior Volunteers
During the summer months, young volunteers between the ages of 14 and 18 can assist in a variety of areas on both Benefis East and West campuses.

Rock-n-Read
Volunteers rock and read to babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

Senior Services Life Enrichment
Help out with the adult residents and their families at our Senior Services campuses by providing a variety of opportunities for creativity and fun.

Waiting Areas
Some volunteers staff the patient waiting areas, such as the surgery waiting area and the endoscopy waiting area. They answer phone calls and serve as a liaison for staff and patients' families.
